High school and college career

Salmons was a member of a Pennsylvania high school state championship team while at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School in 1997, where he reached the 1,000 point club. He went on to play college basketball at the University of Miami, in Florida.

NBA career

Salmons was drafted out of the University of Miami, with the 26th overall selection by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2002 NBA Draft. He was then immediately traded with Mark Bryant and rights to Randy Holcomb for Speedy Claxton to the Philadelphia 76ers for whom he played through the 2006 season, averaging 4.1 points per game.

Salmons was set to be acquired by the Toronto Raptors on July 13, 2006, in a sign-and-trade deal with Philadelphia. On July 21, 2006, however, there were reports that Salmons was having second thoughts about going to Toronto, and the sign and trade to Toronto was canceled.[2]

On July 24, 2006, Salmons signed a multi-year contract with the Sacramento Kings.[3] On December 22, 2006, he recorded his first triple-double of his NBA career against the Denver Nuggets with 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists.[4]

Salmons was traded to the Chicago Bulls along with former Bull Brad Miller on February 18, 2009 in exchange for four players.[5]

On February 18, 2010, Salmons was sent to the Milwaukee Bucks for Hakim Warrick and Joe Alexander, Bulls' second round picks in 2011 and 2012 and the option to swap first round picks, provided it is not a top 10 pick, in 2010 NBA Draft.[6]

Personal life

In mid-October 2009, Salmons and his wife became the parents of a baby girl.[7][8] It was the couple's second child.[9]
